It's Not Rocket Science

Happy New Year's Eve to you all.

I think we need a nice, simple, thrown-together-in-a-mere-moment sort of thing, this morning.  Something fresh and healthy, perhaps.  A light little something that counteracts the overindulgence of the past few weeks...and a good way to start off the day (in the event of possible overindulgence coming this evening).

A wintry, fresh and lively sort of salad.  It's not rocket science, mind you.  It is, however, bright and refreshing.  And oh so easy to make up.  Perfect for breakfast.  Or brunch.  Even a light dessert.  Yum.

Here you go:

A Wintry Fruit Salad - makes 4 large servings

2 ripe pears, chopped in bite-size chunks
2 crisp apples, chopped as pears
1 large juicy orange, segmented
one or two handfuls dried cranberries
1/2 cup (or more, if you prefer) fresh pomegranate seeds

Dressing Ingredients
juice of 1/2 an orange
1/4 cup honey
few tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Whisk together all dressing ingredients in a large bowl, then add the fruit, and toss gently to combine.

Super simple, yes?  Just the way I like it.

Have a beautiful New Year's Eve!

Cheers, me dears!
